Birdy Bird

by WisdomUnit - Jam Entry

A simple game but very fun. It fits the theme well. This game was made by a team of 4 people. It was made in Processing. The art was in MS PAINT. Its a flappy bird kind of game. A short description but good.

Interesting use of screen space, but it works! I like the style (some clouds would be cool though). Thanks!

I liked it for the fun use of the screen space !
A simpler version of flappy bird asie from that. A tad sad you didn't added something more crazy with the processing possibilities .

Super annoying interface. I get what you were going for, but nah, not user friendly. Very meh flappyclone gameplay.

In my first run the first wall was solid, no hole to fly through. Bug?

I would have liked to see more feedback from the game. Buttons should signal that they have been pressed, otherwise it hard to follow what happens. Maybe you could have added some screen-shake when the bird hits the wall. A screen flash when the bird goes through a hole?

In a game like this its important that I can start over very quickly when I die. What you do here is have me move my mouse, click the restart text (a VERY slow fade start, hardly noticable), another hardly noticable fade-in happens in the start screen, I then have to move my mouse over to the title screen, I click the play button, nothing happens, I have to wait until fully faded in until I can click. Game restarts. I immediately fly into the second wall and have to go through all that again...

Work a little more on the user experience next time and you'll be good :)

The music is lovely :) Whistling along to it here in the office.

Love the music, the artwork is pretty nice aswell. As for the gameplay itself, I was hoping for a bit extra than the normal Flappy bird kind of games, but hey, it's still just as addictive as the original:P

Interesting interpretation of the theme, having the "screes" fade out and in - at first I thought it was a bug, but I realised after a couple of plays.
The music is quite nice, and the art is nice too. The idea really isn't an original one, though.

High marks for art and music, not thrilled about the flappynes.

It's flappy bird, what can I say. It was a pretty faithful clone. I liked the screen transition thing!

Presentation wise, I think this is great (and you really took the theme to its limit, which blew my mind a little once I realised it was intentional) - but, it is flappy bird and I did notice a few collision bugs (seems your walls' collision boxes are offset by about half the "game screen" width towards the player) so I feel there was a lot more potential with the screenspace concept.

You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
